One review

  • Revenge of the Sith was the Star Wars movie we were waiting for! After two watchable movies, one badder than the other, Sith concludes the prequel trilogy on a very satisfactory and epic note! The movie doesn’t waist too much time on political dialog, there is more action, the characters are both better and stronger, the acting is much better, the story is obviously stronger than in the previous two prequel flicks and Sith brings back the excitement and entertainment, that all we Star Wars fans missed so desperately! Lucas wrapped the prequel trilogy up nicely, so the best thing to be said about the prequel trilogy is: it ended on a high!

    First of all, the character development is superb in this movie! We’ve been missing this factor! Gone are the wooden dialog, boring scenes and awkward moments! Sith tells it’s story better, than the previous two together! The dialog is for once quite meaningful and much more interesting!

    The acting considered, Ewan McGregor delivers a remarkable performance here! He fully bonds with the character, and I bought every scene he was in, and every line he delivered! McGregor leaves the saga gracefully! Hayden Cheistensen is also better in this, than he was in Clones! He gracefully captures the essence of Darth Vader, and his psychological transformation is remarkably played out by Christensen! I don’t think he deserved a Razzie! Natalie Portman was acceptable, and Ian McDiarmid and Samuel L. Jackson were both equally awesome! Dooku has a nice little cameo role, and the new character General Grievious is badass as hell!

    Another great thing about the movie is clearly the lightsaber fights! If there ever was two characters you wanted to see fight… The fight between those two characters would be in this movie! The choreography in this movie is awesome… So is the sound, the visual effects, the music (of course), the cinematography and the action! The technical department just has everything!

    Revenge of the Sith is a great action movie, and still manages to be some kind of a suspenseful thriller, like the original trilogy! The scenes and lines are more powerful, and the psychology of the characters is better… And so is the acting! Sith could have been part of a better trilogy… But it’s stuck with Menace and Clones… What a shame! Sith really had quality and a vision!

    8/10
